Similarity-based layouts generated by multidimensional projections or other dimension reduction techniques are commonly used to visualize high-dimensional data. Many projection techniques have been recently proposed addressing different objectives and application domains. Nonetheless, very little is known about the effectiveness of the generated layouts(More)
Visualization of high-dimensional data requires a mapping to a visual space. Whenever the goal is to preserve similarity relations a frequent strategy is to use 2D projections, which afford intuitive interactive exploration, e.g., by users locating and selecting groups and gradually drilling down to individual objects. In this paper, we propose a framework(More)
A common strategy for visual encoding of multidimensional data for visual analyses is to use dimensionality reduction. Each multidimensional data point is projected to a 2D point using a certain strategy for the 2D layout. Many layout strategies have been proposed addressing different objectives and targeted at distinct domains and applications. The(More)
A common strategy for encoding multidimensional data for visual analysis is to use dimensionality reduction techniques that project data with a very large number of objects and dimensions from higher dimensions onto a lower-dimensional space. In visual analytics tasks, the density of the multidimensional clusters can strongly affect how these clusters are(More)
This paper introduces new terminology to describe the perceptual qualities of the non-photorealistic animation sequences created using an analysis/synthesis approach to rendering. Specifically, we propose the use of different matching optimization criteria as part of the creative control for generating animated sequences, or stylized video, and we explore(More)

Node-link diagrams are widely used for visualizing relational data in a wide range of fields. However, in many situations it is useful to provide set membership information for elements in networks. We present BranchingSets, an interactive visualization technique that uses visual encodings similar to Kelp Diagrams in order to augment traditional node-link(More)
When investigating multidimensional data sets with very large numbers of objects and/or a very large number of dimensions, a variety of visualization methods can be employed in order to represent the data effectively and to enable the user to explore the data at different levels of detail. A common strategy for encoding multidimensional data for visual(More)
Multidimensional data impose a challenge for visual analyses. Commonly, dimensionality reduction techniques are used to project the multidimensional data into a 2D visual space. Poco et al. [9] showed that projection into a 3D visual space can increase the performance of common visual analysis tasks due to a higher projection precision. They also backed up(More)
This paper explores the specialized nature of research-oriented web applications that enable interactions with and the visual analysis of ``Big Data,'' i.e., large, heterogeneous scientific datasets. We introduce a pragmatic methodology for the design and evaluation of scientific workflows in research-oriented web applications. Through an in-depth usability(More)
